The Cow Shed is a newly converted single storey property presented to a very high standard with the luxury of an indoor swimming pool on the estate and WiFi. The cottage is all arranged on the ground floor and has no steps or stairs inside so is ideal for those with limited mobility, please ask for details. It enjoys sea views from the garden and combines traditional character and charm with locally sourced materials. The cottage enjoys a perfect location in Southern Snowdonia just a short walk from the coast, providing a wonderful place to relax and unwind.

The sitting room boasts a modern log burner, a 50 inch flatscreen TV with Freesat and DVD player. The bright spacious kitchen is equipped with LPG cooker & hob, fridge/freezer and microwave and a dining area with table and chairs for 8. A separate utility room houses a washing machine. There are three bedrooms - one with a super kingsize bed, ensuite shower room with large shower, basin and WC and French doors to the courtyard, a second bedroom also with a super kingsize bed and one with twin beds. The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin and WC and there is another WC and basin in the cloakroom.

The Cow Shed enjoys a courtyard garden with lavender beds and seating area and is surrounded by three acres within the Llanfendigaid Estate - scenic farmland with magnificent views of beautiful scenery and glimpses of the sea. Guests have access to the farmland with woodland walks and seating benches. There is a small sand and shingle beach nearby and even a 'private' request train station on the Barmouth line.

Guests at The Cow Shed have use of a 28' x 14' private indoor heated swimming pool.  This is shared with Llanfendigaid, two other cottages and people staying at the small Caravan Club CL (certified location) on the estate. This is restricted to five pitches and is a good distance from the main house and secluded by trees. The estate also boasts its own small walled garden where vegetables and other produce are grown - these are available to guests to buy subject to availability.

This luxury holiday cottage is dog friendly and up to 2 dogs are very welcome.

Electricity and central heating included.

Bed linen and towels provided. Please bring your own beach towels.

Cot and high chair available.

WiFi is available but given the location of the estate it is satellite based which is priced by the provider on a usage basis. For this reason only access for simple browsing and email is suggested - all bookings will receive a free voucher for 500Mb of data. Additional data vouchers are available from the owner subject to additional fee.

Please note there is a stream on the estate and children should be supervised. Children should also be supervised in and around the swimming pool.


Perched on the edge of Snowdonia, excellent opportunities abound nearby for walking, bird watching, climbing and cycling. Nearby Tywyn (5 miles) has a sand and shingle beach and is the terminal of the Talyllyn Railway, one of the famous "Little Trains of Wales". Aberdyfi (7 miles) has a good choice of bars and restaurants, a first rate golf course and 5 miles of golden sand and dunes with excellent sailing.

The Llanfendigaid Estate has been owned by the Nanney-Wynn family and their forebears since records began in AD 1241. An estate map from 1780 shows that the original estate stretched along the Welsh coast from Harlech in the north to Aberystwyth in the south. However, since the collapse of many of the great British estates in the 1920s, Llanfendigaid Estate has gradually reduced in size to a much smaller patch within the Snowdonia National Park on one of the most attractive stretches of the Welsh coastline.
